He is also survived by sisters Marilyn Clapp of Exeter ME and Evelyn Keaten of So Paris ME. Also surviving are brothers and sisters-in-law Norman and Gloria Partridge of Corinna ME, Frederick and Irma Partridge of Augusta ME, Doris Bridge of Rochester NH, Phyllis Call of Corinna ME and Mildred and Gene Stocker of Exeter ME and Joan Chadbourne of Milford CT and numerous nieces and nephews. Predeceasing him were brothers Henry, Edward and Vaughn and his sisters Annie, Erma, Edna, Claire, Caroline, Dorothy and Wilma and granddaughter Laurel Skratt.

Basil served in the U.S. Army from 1951 to 1953 and often talked about his time in Germany after the war had ended. He started his career in the shoe industry as a handsewer and worked his way up through various positions and worked as plant superintendent in many locations throughout New England throughout his career known as “Chad”. He was also in charge of establishing, furnishing and running new factories in Maine and Virginia. He ended his career as a Management Consultant in the shoe industry and traveled extensively with numerous visits to Brazil, China, Haiti, Mexico and Yugoslavia. He belonged to numerous organizations in the Rochester, NH and Bangor, ME areas including the Anah Temple Shriners; A.F. & A.M. Masons, 32nd Degree, Scottish Rite; Elks, BPOE #1393; Eagles, Aerie #3177; and American Legion Post #7.

Having lost his parents at a young age Basil and his family was proud that he returned to school to obtain his GED in 1973 the same yr his son graduated from high school. Basil did many projects in carpentry throughout his life and built an executive ranch in Bangor ME in 1980 where he and Alta lived until settling again in Rochester in 1985. He enjoyed growing his own flowers from seed and for ten years he and Alta set up at the flea market in York ME where he sold many flowers to folks throughout the local area.

The family wishes to give a special thanks to all the folks at Cornerstone VNA for their care and concern and especially their LNA Renee Ames for her special ability to bring him comfort during his final month. The family is requesting in lieu of flowers that people make a donation in his memory to Cornerstone VNA, 178 Farmington Rd, Rochester NH 03867.

He will be interred at Mt Pleasant Cemetery, Dexter Rd, Cambridge, ME in October.
